THE UNIVERSITY of Antique has partnered with the Department of Information and Communications Technology in launching an electronic hub and free wifi station in its Sibalom campus.

Under its “TECH4ED” program, the DICT provided the UA eight desktop computers to be used for distance learning.

“A TECH4ED Center is a self-sustaining, shared facility providing access to ICT-enabled services and relevant content for unserved and underserved communities. The center is open not only to the UA community but also to the public, especially the beneficiaries of DICT-initiated Digitaljobsph training, of which UA has been a beneficiary in 2019,” the school said.

The center will be under the supervision of the Management Information Services.

The “Free WiFi for All” program was part of the initiative of former Senator Loren Legarda.

“Legarda is now congresswoman of Antique, and is making sure that the campuses of UA system are the first to benefit. Sibalom and Hamtic campuses have active sites, and Tibiao and Libertad  campuses will be activated next, while Caluya campus is up for activation next year,” the school said.
